This is an opportunity offered by an organization outside of Philadelphia Futures but you might be interested**

Temple University’s College of Education and Human Development is excited to announce a Summer II dual enrollment opportunity designed for rising juniors and seniors in the School District of Philadelphia who are interested in exploring the teaching profession and possibly majoring in education in college.

The course will be offered from July 12th- August 11th. During these weeks, students will attend virtual, synchronous class meetings on Mondays and Wednesdays from 4:00-6:00pm. Students will have access to Temple College of Education and Human Development staff to receive support in their coursework as needed.

Students participating in our Summer II dual enrollment course will:

  1. engage in coursework over the summer (one general education Race and Diversity class, which is equivalent to three college credits) on the path to earning a bachelor’s degree from an institution of higher education. Students will attend virtual class meetings from July 12th – August 11th,
  2. receive support from Temple College of Education and Human Development professional and student staff members, who will help guide them through their coursework and assist with any college planning questions they may have. Supports will be available during weekly office hours on Tuesdays from 4- 5pm and by appointment, and
  3. earn high school credits (arts & humanities) and college credits at no cost to them or their families.
  4. The course that has been selected is a General Education “Race and Diversity” course at Temple U. called “EDUC 0823: Kids in Crisis: When Schools Don’t Work” and will be taught by Dr. Donna-Marie Cole-Malott. This course is designed to teach students how to think about race and diversity through the lens of challenges to ensuring equity in educational outcomes for all students. In addition to identifying systemic challenges to ensuring equity in U.S. public schools, the course will also focus on the exploration of solutions for addressing inequity at the classroom, school, and systems levels. This course will count as a “Arts and Humanities” credit on School District of Philadelphia transcripts.

The application now has an extended deadline of Friday, May 28, 2021.
